Adventures In Juicing

Friday, April 06, 2012

For a while now, I have been having horrible bouts of fatigue and not feeling well. I had to force myself to workout, was ready for bed by 8:30pm and would not want to get up in the morning. I knew I wanted to make a change without going to the Dr, running up tons of medical bills and still finding no reason. Been there, done that so many times. I'm tired of being robbed by the medical industry.

After watching many documentaries and doing research, I decided to try juicing. I went out and bought and inexpensive juicer to start with and a bunch of veggies. I have now drank a green juice for two days. I swear I can already feel the effects of it. Here are some pics...

This is what went into my juice. Spinach, kale, parsley, lemon, apple, ginger root, cucumber, green pepper, and carrot.

This is the end result. It was actually pretty good! I plan on continuing this once a day, everyday. I will let you know how it goes after I try it for a while but I already feel better.

    That's great! What kind of juicer did you buy? I've been making green juice w/ my blender, but there's still some pieces of spinach and it doesn't emulsify enough.

    I have been interested in juicing too but haven't tried it yet. I will be interested to see how it turns out for you.

    I have a juicer and never use it because it is a pain to clean. I guess I should leave it on the counter if I actually want to use it.

    What a great way to get in some very healthy veggies on a regular basis! Hope that does the trick for you and helps enormously; I know how you feel about going to the doctor unless it's absolutely necessary, too often you have to go through a bunch of tests and waste both time and money without getting any real answers.

    I use to buy a couple different kinds of "green" juice and loved it but it was expensive.

Good Luck and keep us posted on how it works.

    How does it taste though? The thought of something that looks like that, touching my tongue just makes my tummy turn!

I am very glad though that you are feeling good affects from it!
